    anybody ever put those banjo finger picks on their fingers and play the bass? im interested in knowing if this would give the 'pick' sound combined wth the finger 'feel'.

    I haven't but...banjo finger picks are really small and thin, they would probably break on a bass.

    anyone ever try and tape two bass picks onto their fingers and play? :)

    I've tried using finger picks on a bass before, and it had a pretty damn metallic sound. Then again, that's probably because of the whole metal pick on metal string deal (DUH!). The picks were never in danger of breaking. It doesn't quite sound like a regular pick though it still retains a finger-feel. The only thing I can suggest is trying it. You might like it (or not).
